    ur getting all mixed up. im pretty sure i remember that interview. rza said that gza was the first person to do a song where something is something else. it can be taken two ways. he said that all started with labels and influenced nas to make i gave u power (this is actually wrong though mc shan did the first allegory with this song )

    rza then talked about how nas was the first guy to write a story as a letter. and that this influenced 'stan'.

    I remember that interview with Allhiphop I think. He said this actually in more interviews, he always mentions Labels when he's talking about GZA. Nas was superior to MC Crackhead but he was influenced by it for sure.

    "Killah Hills" might have my favorite line: "...even underwent surgery / they said his pirate limp gave him away / as the Feds rushed 'em comin' through US Customs"

    or.. "He set bombs in bottles of champagne / so when niggas popped the corks, niggas lost half their brains"

    OR.. "cemetery's packed / of niggas who think 'it ain't like that'" makes me laugh


    if you want to talk about best GZA verse, I'd have to exclude all of Liquid Swords and look only at guest appearances. "Silverbacks" is an incredible verse.

    I never paid much attention to that one. It's incredible how he keeps mentioning things about DICE in a different way and is witty with it. If he's talking about dice you know there's going to be a double entendre there.

    I move bravely traveling on a horse
    on a battlefield surrounded by the loss
    of those who plotted with the brains of animals!!!

    A smash hit from Sammy Gravano
    here's the plan minimum for the hit , two hundred grand
    Half time at the game blastin niggaz out the stands
    The sharp-shooters hit the prosecutor, judges are sent

    u can see the obvious ones like 'half time' 'stands' and 'game' but also ones like a 'smash hit' can b a big tackle (its call the way 'smash hit' fits both the singer and american football extended metaphors) and in american football i think a shooter is another name 4 a gunner.
    Sammy the Bull Gravano was the guy that ratted out John Gotti, hence the "Smash hit like Sammy Gravano" cause he was singing on the witness stand

    my favourite GZA line of all time is real simple:
    "Under the Subway waiting the train to make noise, so I can blast the nigga and his boys"

    You witness the rhyme, nothin but dimes
    The eightball murder verse, freestyle or rehearsed
    I wreck emcees whether I'm last or first
    What, what, what, what, hazardous dart
    Visual long forgotten art
    That fell apart, til the blood ran from the heart
    Pump through the street, Rza make re-break beats
    Packed seats, rapid fire raps at off track meets
    And an arm tank, high rank, heavy metal shank
    Blow 'em off the plank when they ships approach the bank
    Wu niggas rollin, throwin the first rap slogan
    Heroes of Hogan, shot up the military clothin'
    Quickly blow up, rolled up in rappers like pennies
    My brother stack tracks on the behalf of many
    With the wisdom, power of, science from experts


    - conditioner
